athene: (wedding kiss)

We went to our local Faire yesterday for our friend’s vow renewal ceremony. Little Prince fits much better into the outfit that Zee made for him last year (and we still have to pin it a bit, since she cut the necks HUGE). The day turned out to be cold and rainy, but we still had a great time. Maybe it was because the crowds were smaller or maybe because we were out so much last year that we’ve started to recognize and be recognized by the regulars, but we had way more interactions with cast and others this year than in previous years. Or maybe it was just how cute LP is. Two different gypsies asked me his price (he’s much too young to sell to them yet) and I had to keep a close eye on him when the fae were around so they wouldn’t steal him away.

The vow renewal ceremony went well. Afterwards we went to the Fest Hall for a feast. The food was good and the company was delightful. There was a little girl there, T, who had just turned 3. She and LP were running around chasing each other, and then her shoe fell off. I caught what happened on video.

Why yes, we’ve been watching a lot of Cinderella at our house lately, how did you know?

"Smaction" COMMERCIAL :30 from Colleen O'Hare: Writer/Producer on Vimeo.



This is the bestest commerical ever. [livejournal.com profile] queencimmy and I use to quote it to each other all the time. I gave up hope of ever finding it on the web. And then I randomly look for it and there it is! I'm actually bouncing in my seat.

It's smarts in action. Smarts inaction. Smaction. Squeeeeeeeeeeee

THIS!

Today is the First of May. Last year for Beltane [livejournal.com profile] lordaerith and I went to a ritual where we jumped the fire together, then I kissed the May Pole. Today we are just under three weeks from expecting our baby. Sometimes those pagan rituals, they are the powerful.

Today we went shopping for yet more baby things we still needed and for some other stuff. Then we came home, napped, ate, and watched the newest episode of Game of Thrones. OMG, best episode so far!

And now, is bed time.

Game On

The find folks at The Guild have brought us another music video to celebrate their newest season:

This is a song by Marian Call sung from the point of view of Firefly's "Yolanda/Saffron/Bridget". Really nice fan vid. Go listen to her whole album of Firefly and BSG inspired songs: http://mariancall.bandcamp.com/album/got-to-fly. And if you like that, she's currently touring the whole country (except Hawaii), so look for her she's playing somewhere near you. She's playing house concerts in Austin this Saturday and Monday.

I would like to announce that this is my 2,100th entry!

I would like to thank my readers, my friend, RL and online drama, internet memes and videos, and especially twitter. Without y'all, I would have never made it this far.

Also, today is Beltane, aka the First of May. In honor of such an occasion, here are a whole bunch of videos of "First of May" by Jonathan Coulton (link will bring you to lyrics and a downloadable mp3). Lyrics are NSFW. Some videos are slightly more SFW than others.

We start off with my friend CaptainValor's lovely ASL version (safe for work if you turn off the captions and don't have any coworkers who can read ASL):



For those of you who enjoy WoW, here is Spiff's WoW version (NSFW - depicts WoW toons in "adult" acts). This one can be also be downloaded:



Here is a live version of the song from when one of the times that JoCo came to Austin. It was recorded by me and [livejournal.com profile] lordaerith and you can hear sometimes (video is worksafe with headphones unless you have a lip reader hanging around).



There are lots of other versions of the song out there if you want to find them.

Finally, here is Jonathan Coulton's request for everyone today (please do not get arrested) and a link to a live version mp3.

You can get these in game outside of the starting areas. It's awesome to run around with a Night Elf Mohawk mask!
